I am so glad I found the AntiCancer Lifestyle Program. This is an amazing idea and gift. Our son-in-law at 39 has glioblastoma. After surgery, chemo, and radiation we hope, no relapse. Hope, however, is not a plan. My wife and I are changing to help him change.”

“My patients respond to the Anticancer Lifestyle Program in a way I find unprecedented in 30 years of Radiation Oncology practice. It helps them feel that we are caring for them, and not just delivering cancer treatment.”

The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Offering this course to all of our employees really underscores how much we care about them and their loved ones.”

Four day “fasting mimicking” diet around the time of chemotherapy improved results in breast cancer patients

In a study published in Nature Communications, researchers found that women with Her2 negative, stage 2/3 breast cancer, had improved outcomes from chemotherapy when they went on a four-day, low-calorie, plant-based “fasting-mimicking” diet around the time of their therapy.

The researchers explained these results this way:

“When you look at how the body’s metabolism changes by intermittent fasting, it’s pretty fascinating because you decrease a lot of the inflammatory markers, you decrease a lot of growth factors like insulin. And so the thought is that it could be a good anti-cancer therapy by itself.”

According to de Groot and colleagues, healthy cells will switch from a proliferative state to a maintenance and repair state with fasting, while malignant cells don’t adapt to a nutrient scarce environment. “Instead, fasting deprives proliferating cancer cells of nutrients, growth and other factors, which renders them more sensitive to cancer therapy and increases cell death,” they explained.”
